Impulsion explores the contingent outcome of arbitrarily chained and randomly parametrized image processing units operating on a singleton white-colored pixel.
Apple’s CoreImage is a pixel-accurate image processing framework for applying image filters and effects within the Quartz graphics rendering layer; it is extensively used in Mac Os X (as of 10.4) and iOS (as of 5.0) operating systems and compatible third-party applications. Impulsion explores CoreImage’s image generating potential by means of triggering its various filters and transformations using just a nominal-valued white-colored pixel. The proposed algorithm relies on stochastic processes to parametrize and to interconnect the various processing units in larger systems and will result into a series of digital images of various dimensions and resolutions that may be, subsequently, presented employing a variety of media (computer screens, digital prints, projections, paintings on canvases, etc).
